Eräänä kesäiltana

En sommarkväll / One Summer Evening. FI (c) 1978 Alko. PC: Filmityö. D+ED: Jaakko Pakkasvirta. SC: Jaakko Pakkasvirta, Lauri Törhönen. DP: Esa Vuorinen. Sound: Tom Forsström. Cast: Kari Heiskanen, Jarmo Hyttinen, Lars Lindberg, Marja-Leena Keski-Kuha. 15 min. Temperance drama. Viewed at Orion, Helsinki, 23 March 2005. One of the last Finnish temperance stories made on film to be screened on film; after this, the genre turned to video and television. This is a distinguished sample, also of the genre of the traffic education film, as such as worthy an achievement as Dreyer's De nåede faergen / They Reached the Ferry (there is even a ferry sequence!). Honest, powerful, well acted.
